    Last Train from Hiroshima offers listeners a stunning "you are there" time capsule, gracefully wrapped in elegant prose. Charles Pellegrino's scientific authority and close relationship with the A-bomb's survivors make his account the most gripping and authoritative ever written. At the narrative's core are eyewitness accounts of those who experienced the atomic explosions firsthand---the Japanese civilians on the ground and the American fliers in the air.

    Overall

    As expected, this book is an extraordinary collection of the trials and tribulations of those who survived the truly awful events of both the Nagasaki and Hiroshima bombs. The wonderful surprising part is that this is also a tale of the indominable human spirit and the beauty people can have in the face and aftermath of tragic and traumatic events. I can not empahsize enough how much I recommend this book. This book should be a requirement for every human being.

  • Roots of Buddhist Psychology

    The Buddha said many times that just as the great oceans have but one taste, so do all the true teachings of the dharma: the taste of freedom. Jack Kornfield's The Roots of Buddhist Psychology is an invitation to drink deeply of these teachings; to taste the wisdom that flows from the heart of Buddhism's most useful ideas on the interior life and what brings awakening, freedom, and happiness. Jack Kornfield opens this eternal view of the mind for all listeners in this collection.

    Brian says: "Calming if not Memorable"
    "Fantastic read"
    Overall

    I will admit I have found Jack Kornfield a little less than interesting in the past but this audiobook (which is really a multi-day seminar) was truly interesting and helps me find peace on stressfull days. Each segment is short enough to make a really great point and then you can stop and ponder the segment before going to the next segment. Great delivery and information. Well worth the full price.

  • The Predictioneer's Game: Using the Logic of Brazen Self-Interest to See and Shape the Future

    Revealing the origins of game theory and the advances made by John Nash, the Nobel Prize-winning scientist perhaps best known from A Beautiful Mind, Bueno de Mesquita details the controversial and cold-eyed system of calculation that he has since created, one that allows individuals to think strategically about what their opponents want, how much they want it, and how they might react to every move.

    Overall

    I thought this would be an interesting read along the lines of Malcolm Gladwell. Unfortunately, this is really a book more interested on promoting the author and how "brilliant" he is rather than telling an interesting story.
